best software for simulating permanent magnet motors?
« on: June 12, 2008, 04:06:57 AM »
A fellow on my inertial propulsion group (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Centrifugal_Inertial_Propulsion) has a small permanent magnet motor prototype (videos are in the files section of that group).

He's looking for software that will allow him to simulate his permanent magnet motor, so he can scale it up (and hopefully get useful work out of it).

What software are people here using? Where can it be gotten? How much does it cost? How hard is it to learn?

Is the video the one titled     "PMMA rotery stator motor 01.flv "

This looks like a 'almost' working replication of Al's OC_MPMM magnetic motor motor in this discussion thread.

More information also here plus about two dozen other places.

Several people including myself have tried to replicate this without much success. It looks like your member had a bit better luck at getting it to accelerate for a moment but it still runs down and stops in the end. Al's version would run for days but no one was able to duplicate the long run time. I believe the thread I pointed out above from overunity.com has some discussion about various simulation programs as well as other video links. Best of luck.

Magnetic simulation software has CoE built in, so good luck with that.

If you want to sim magnetic interactions, use some mathematical modeling software and create your own models.

Anyway, is far more complex than just attraction or repulsion. The world will know soon, but not soon enough, I'm afraid.
